Bailiffs or other Enforcement Officers are legally authorised to collect debts on behalf of county courts and other creditors. They can pursue a wide range of debts including council tax and business rate arrears, CCJs, high court judgements, income tax, NICs, VAT, business rent and even parking penalties.
There are various tactics we can advise you to use to stop bailiffs turning up but not answering the door or phone isn’t one of them!
The most important thing you should do if bailiffs arrive or if you’re told they might be on their way is to contact us and tell us everything.
Ed, the Business Rescue Expert, explains what happens when a bailiff visits your business looking for payment including how to make sure they don't have to.
